The nation of Antigua and Barbuda has joined the final communiqué of the Peace Summit, despite the country's representatives not attending the meeting in Switzerland, according to President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

"I am grateful to Antigua and Barbuda for joining the communique of the Global Peace Summit. It is the first country that was not represented at the Summit, but later joined the outcome document," he wrote.

Zelenskyy emphasized that the addition of another country to the communiqué "shows that our Formula for Peace and our vision of a just and lasting peace is shared by all continents and regions of the world, from Europe to the Caribbean. And this coalition will only grow."

Additionally, the president said that a truly stable world is a world of true equality where all nations have a voice and can demonstrate their leadership.

"That is why we created the format of the Peace Summit, which we will continue to develop, attracting new participants and working diligently to bring peace closer," he stressed.

Peace Summit

Over the weekend, the global peace summit took place in Bürgenstock, Switzerland. Representatives from over 100 states and numerous international organizations participated. The parties discussed ways to implement the provisions of the peace formula proposed by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

The outcome of the meeting was the signing of a joint communiqué. In it, the forum's participants condemned Russia's actions, which have led to widespread destruction, and called for respect for Ukraine's territorial integrity.

However, Iraq and Jordan later announced their decision to withdraw their signatures from the document. The governments of these countries explained their move by expressing the desire to thoroughly review the communiqué's provisions before making a final decision on its support.
